OATH TELLS WHAT HE KNOWS ABOUT Z3BTLAHD. Washington 1 , Pi. C., May 2.— George Alfred Townsend, in an article published in the Star to-day, over the signature of “Arctorus Gada bout,” makes the following explanation of his reputed acquaintance and association with, the notorious Kirtland: About two weeXa ago I was riding past a gentleman 1 ! house in 2£ street, when I saw a good-looking mao who form-arly boomed at the Arlington Hotel, ana drove two line horses. He entered the house, and X •aid to a friend who was riding with me, 44 1 wonder if is not Kirtland, the TniuHnj* philosopher T The testimony said that Kirtland used to board, at the Arlington Motel, and kept two tlnn hones. The next thing I beard was that the Deputy Sergeax/t-at-Arma 44 was looking ” after me, to know the whereabouts of Kirtland. Next my name was thrice brought up before the Investigating Committee, to know whether I had not seen Kirtland. Next, the strictly evangelical part of the telegraphlo cor£« exuded the expression that I was the ms iter genius that had spirited Kirtland out of town. Then I went to the thtatro with Mr. Trowbridge, of New York, and a city sheet alleged that I had spent the night at the play with Kirtland. Now I want Kirt land to send me his photograph, for I had much rath er be in Kirtland’s company than in that of a number of young men who lay down the moral law to Ameri can men. E2STLA2TD AGAIN Kirtland, the most audacious fraud of modem times, was before the Investigating Committee to-day. As yeat erday, hie testimony was evasive, non-committal, and untruthful throughout. 8a satisfied was Jndge Thurman of the lying char* acter of the man’s answers that he left the com* mittee-room in disgust after propounding to bin half a dozen questions. Lawyers old in experi* •ace unhesitatingly pronounce Kirtland the most unblushing perjurer that ever cams within their knowledge. That he is next thing to being totally depraved, is admitted on ail hands. The following choice specimen from Kirtland's evidence to-day will give the readef an idea of the true character of the man : Judge Thurman—ln yonr letter to Wilooz, written April 15, 1874, tho following eentenc* occurs: “ I think McClelland made an ass of himself.” Please tell me wherein McClelland made an ass of himself. Kirtland—Well, he did bad work on his Wash ington contracts, and acknowledged it to the Committee. Jndge Thurman —Then, sir, you wish this Committee to understand that yon think any man an ass who has sense of honor enough to tell the truth. Kirtland—As the world goes, air, I think my man an ass to acknowledge anything to hia own injury. Judge Thurman—Well, all I have to say is tha world will not accuse you of an aso of yourself, as you interpret the moaning of the term, daring your examination before this Committee. ■ Judge Wilaon —Have you told any one since you have been in this city that yon could not ac count for the proceeds of the notes without im plicating nereone in high places? Kirtland —I have told no one any such thing. Judge Wilson—Then, if Emery Storrs or fir. Mattingly have testified to this Committee that you made such a statement to thorn, they told an untruth ? Kirtland —They lied if they told you that. CHITTENDEN AND PABSON9. Kirtland gives the following as Chittenden's reasons for employing Col. Parsons: Q. —Yon know of the employment of Col. Par sons? A.—Yes, sir. Q. —When did yon first know of that? What took place concerning it ? A.—l do not remember what took place. He was considered a ■well-known man here, and knew Got. Cooke very well. Q. —What farther ? A.—l suppose he was employod to interest him self with Got. Cooke in the matter. XIHTLAND AND BTOBBS, The following is Kirtlaud’s version of his re cent interview with Emery Storrs: Q.—Have you had any interview with any per son connected with the investigation since you reached this city ? A.—No one except Mr. Storrs, if he is con nected with it in any way. Q. —Where did yon see Mr. Btom? A.—l went over to his room. Q. —And found him in ? A—l found him in bed; yes, sir. Q. —Yon bad an interview with him? A. —Yes, sir. Q. —How long did it last ? A.—Bat a few mmntes. Q. —What was said and done there ? A. —He said be was devilish glad to sea zna That was all he said. Xhe elimination of Kirtland will be continued on Monday. [To the Auociated Preu.l Washington, May 2.—At the session of tha District of Colombia Investigation Committee today. Lewis Clephane, Collector of the Dis trict, was recalled and examined with refer once to the formation of the Metropolis and other paving companies, prior to letting con tracts by the Board of Public Works, be admitted that one of the objects in consoli dating the various patent pavement interest* was to prevent competition. SLAT, or CHICAGO, testified that It cost about $2.80 per square yarf to lay the DeGolyer A McClelland pavement No. 2in Washington, but that ho figured on e basis of receiving payment in District scrip and not in money. KUITLAXp was again examined. He reiterated bis state ment that be received all the proceeds of ths Chittenden notes with the exception of €IO,OOO, which was received by the Bev. W. Calvin Brown. He was questioned sharply concerning an extract from a letter written Iry bun, dated New Yoik, April 16, to Wilcox in this ctty, ta which he refers to McClelland as an ass. The Committee are verymnch dissatisfied with the replies made bv witness, and do not g'vo much, if any, credit to his testimony. He inti mates a desire to go to New York to-night. Tt’B Committee directed him to.remam in the city,ana hold the Sergoant-at-Arms of the Senate respon. sponsible for nia presence on Monday. THE FINANCES. Special Dupatch to TU CMcago Tribune.
